Computer Go: Zen wins 9x9 against Motoki Noguchi

On Tuesday, two Go games on 9x9 board were played between Motoki Noguchi (6 Dan, Japan) and the computer program Zen. Komi was set to 7.0. Zen won both games. This was different to the European Go Congress 2011 in Bordeaux, where Zen lost its game against Motoki Noguchi, at that time with Motoki playing white and Komi set to 0.5.
